Roqué’s Birthday Film Release: Embracing the Ephemeral (08/28/21)

TODAY, AUGUST 28, IS MY BIRTHDAY!!! In what has now become a tradition, I am releasing one of my films today. Embracing the Ephemeral was a film I made as my Creative Thesis Project of the University Honors College of Middle Tennessee State University during my senior year. It features my family and fellow Filipino immigrants in my community.

I wanted to make a contemplative documentary exploring the nature of immigration as it effects a person’s culture and identity across time. This project took a year and a half to complete. I was able to secure a grant to buy a camera and audio equipment, and it took a lot of work to finish.

I am personally very proud of this project, and I am happy to finally share it with the world.

Please enjoy watching this film and share it with anyone who you think might appreciate it.

Thank you for watching!!
